What If Something Better or Faster Than Fiber Comes Out? Shouldn't We Wait?

There isn't any technology better or faster than fiber optic technology.  Fiber is hands-down the fastest, most reliable, most future-proof thing there is for internet and communications.  Nothing else even comes close, including 5G.  The chances of our investment being uprooted by a different technology are next to zero.  Despite having to lay the fiber in the ground, which is not as invasive a process as you might think, fiber will provide the best experience possible to residents and businesses alike.  There's a reason that the entire world, including many of our neighboring cities, are standardizing on fiber internet to the home.
